The lead up to Christmas

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!! Let’s get started!!

The lead up to Christmas

It is the 7th of December and we are 18 days away from Christmas!! I love Christmas because in my opinion, it is the best time of year to spend time with your family and be connected over food. The temptation to eat all the chocolates in the advent calendar is huge but hopefully I can make them last all the way until Christmas. Today I will be giving you recipes for sweet treats to put out for Santa. Who said we always need to give him cookies?? We can give him sweet treats that I hope he will enjoy!!
